Re: Soundbar 500/700 Firmware 7.0.11

Whatever firmware update was done, is leading to my BoseMusic app to not connect to the SoundBar 500 device. I have been troubleshooting for days, but cannot find a way to connect the device to the APp. 

Has anyone else had the issue?

The same here. Cannot connect to my Soundbar 700 with the app since 2days. I guess it has to do with the update, but I cannot confirm that without connection to the soundbar the check the firmware version.

Same issue as me. App said it was updating and complete.  Cannot see the Bose 700 now on the app. What’s going on?

Re: Soundbar 500/700 Firmware 7.0.11

Have you tested the Bose Music app on any other device? 

Yes, same problem on my Huawei tablet and Samsung phone

 

Is your Bose Music app updated to the latest version? 

No, still on 3.0.2 and the new version doesn't show up on both devices, even when I force Android to look for updates

 

Are you able to see the Soundbar at all inside the app?

App does not find the soundbar and needs a long time to start. It crashes 2 times and needs 3 attempts to start and find the soundbar.

 

Is this impacting the functionality of the Soundbar?

No
